* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'': [[spoiler:When the player character throw themselves in front of Tatsu to protect them from a Prone Skell attack, their arm is blasted off, revealing circuitry, sparks, and blue bio-electric fluid where their arm used to be.

A specific kind of GlamourFailure. For the alien and other organic creature version of this trope, see AlienBlood and BizarreAlienBiology. Occasionally appears as a {{subver|tedTrope}}sion of MortalWoundReveal - the robot ''should'' have died, but because of its non-biological nature, it won't die, causing much in the way of OhCrap moments.

know]]. But what about the real, human, friend? There are two options. One, that it never existed, and ThisWasHisTrueForm all along (or that he was replaced a long time ago, way before the story began, and none of the heroes had actually meet the real guy). Or two, that he he was kidnapped and replaced as part of an AssimilationPlot or by a spy shapeshifter, and now the heroes must search and rescue their friend, if he was not killed.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. In "Headhunter", a cybernetics scientist apparently goes mad and attacks Tarrant, gets hit by a WrenchWhack and apparently dies. Shortly after his body escapes from cyrogenic suspension, so they use a bomb to bring most of the ceiling down on his head. Which he's lost after getting to his feet again. Turns out he's an android that killed his creator (as you do) cut off his head and stuck it on his shoulders. His creator made a robot head with a MoralityChip, but hadn't had time to install it.
